ABC: Always Bring a Camera!

Today I went to Houts & Equalizer lakes with Cat to run a few miles. I ended up doing 20, I felt great. A few laps into it, we saw these birds in a tree, far off. Fortunately when we realized they were bald eagles, we were close to the car and I grabbed my camera on our next pass by, and then we ran back and took pictures.

I always try to remember my camera when I run in places like this. You never know what you're going to see.

I'm trying to figure out my spring racing schedule now. I have a free round trip ticket on Southwest and I need to figure out how to use it. I'm looking at something on the east coast in early spring. There are a few races I'm considering and it all depends on being able to pull it all together, which means getting the time off work, and finding a crew if necessary.

I have some long training runs planned for this fall, I am starting to get attached to my new lake loop, so I will most likely do a long one out there.

Tomorrow, hills at Horsetooth.

Hi Alene! I recently made it off the wait list for Across the Years. I believe we're in the same run...48 hrs starting 12/30. I read your previous posts on ATY and they were really helpful. I'm a first-timer so I'm soaking it all up! See you there!

Thank you for bringing your camera and taking those pictures, you got some great shots!

I always bring my camera when trail running because every time you hit one, something new is always there it seems.

Thanks Kim. Stopping and taking pictures is what running is all about. I am fortunate to have so many lakes and to live in a place where we have such a variety of birds. Always something new. Happy running!

Thanks Jeff. It was a great run. My new favorite spot. I hope all is well with you. I won't be at the Boulder 24 hour this year, gotta work that weekend. If you go, I wish you a great race!
